    Houghton Mifflin Harcourt 2014; US$ 22.95

    This passionate gardener's daily record of a growing season adds up to one of the best pieces of garden writing in years.

  • Weathering Winterby Carl H. Klaus

    University of Iowa Press 1997; US$ 15.00

    In winter, when the only things growing seem to be icicles and irritability, what pleasures exist for a gardener or for anyone who lives in a northern climate?

    University of Iowa Press 2006; US$ 22.95

    Confident or fretful, solemn or sassy, tough or tender, casual or formal: the self you project in writing—your persona—is the byproduct of numerous decisions you make about what to say and how to say it. Though any single word or phrase or sentence might make little difference within the scope of an entire essay or book, collectively... more...

    Parkstone International 2013; US$ 5.00

    Condemned by the Nazis as a degenerate artist, Franz Marc (1880-1916) was a German painter whose stark linearity and emotive use of color eloquently expressed the pain and trauma of war.
